How to Replace a Taillight on a Jeep Wrangler

A common reason why people tend to get pulled over on the road is that their taillights are out. Because this is a safety hazard, you might be in a hurry to replace a taillight. You might also replace a taillight because there are various cool options for your Wrangler. Either way, here’s how to replace a taillight on a Jeep Wrangler.  

Remove the Top and Bottom Screws 

The first step when replacing your Jeep Wrangler taillights is to remove the top and bottom screws. These screws will be the ones located closest to your trunk. The reason why you don’t have to unscrew the ones on the other side is that they don’t connect to your vehicle. 

Disconnect the Light 

Once you remove the screws, you can then remove the taillight from your Wrangler. When you pull your old taillight out, you will notice a ton of wires connected to it. While this might look a bit overwhelming, all you need to do is unplug the two wires that go into your taillight to remove the entire part.  

Plug in Your New Taillight 

After detaching your old taillight from your Jeep Wrangler, you are now one step closer to having your new taillight installed. Plug in both wires where you unplugged the old taillight. Following this step, you will then want to hook the new taillight into your Wrangler and screw it in.  

Test Them 

The final step on how to replace a taillight on a Jeep Wrangler is to test your new taillights to make sure they are still working. There are two ways you can do this. Either have someone stand behind your vehicle to check or place a camera there and film it as you use your brakes.  

If you need taillights, light guards, covers, or a Jeep Wrangler JK rear bumper, AM-Off Road is the place to look.
